Did they intentionally pick a Easter Bunny costume with the "did he just say that" expression or is it just me.  Maybe its a 'why's there a giant turd in my Cheerios' expression.

What a negotiator!

Quote
That word sums up President Trump’s realization that maybe the Trans-Pacific Partnership wasn’t such a bad deal, after all. As a candidate, Trump declared the TPP a “disaster,” and he withdrew the United States from the 12-nation pact during his first week in the White House. But now, Trump has directed his advisers to explore whether there’s a way back in.

The change of heart likely comes as Trump realizes he needs leverage in his trade spat with China—which is exactly what the TPP is supposed to accomplish. The trade deal was intended to develop an Asian trading bloc that could serve as a counterweight to China, as its economic might grows. The pact includes US allies such as Japan, Australia, Canada and Mexico—but not China. It went into effect without the United States this year.

Man , he is losing it (recent tweets) . most of his tweets are ridiculous, but the tone has changed. And while We can laugh,  but think he’s turned some kind of emotional corner that shouldn’t be dismissed lightly.  Esp w his finger on the formidable war machine we have .

I've heard it recently predicted that California will lose Congressional seats (and electoral votes) after the 2020 census is complete.  That would be the first decline in the state's history and shows what the political consequences of out-migration are.  Red/Purple states will be the primary beneficiaries.

Yes...WE do.

Electoral Maps Derived from FiveThirtyEight Forecasts


FiveThirtyEight is forecasting the presidential election with three models.  In each of these approaches, state-level winning probabilities are assigned to the candidates with each update of the forecast. For more information, see the FiveThirtyEight election forecast user guide.

What we've done here is created an electoral map for each model from the current* FiveThirtyEight state-level probabilities. Essentially, we are coloring a state for Clinton or Trump where one of them has a 60% or higher chance of winning. Blue and red are used to show higher probabilities for Clinton or Trump, with the gradient deepening as the chance of winning increases:  Light (60%+), Medium (80%+), Dark (90% +). As the election draws nearer, look for fewer differences between the three maps.

It's the economy. stupid!!  It always is...

CBO Projects: GDP Headed To 15-Year High

 The Congressional Budget Office’s budget and economic outlook released this month projects that real Gross Domestic Product will grow by 3.3 percent from the fourth quarter of 2017 to the fourth quarter of 2018.

That would mark a 15-year high.
